    Phoronix: Xbox One S Controller Rumbling On Linux, Valve Working On Upstreaming SteamOS Changes

    While the Microsoft Xbox One S Controller has been supported under Linux for a while now, its rumble mode has not been supported by the mainline Linux kernel. That's now in the process of changing with the upstreaming of up until now out-of-tree patches...

    Last year, support for both DualShock 4 and XBone S controllers via bluetooth was very messy. The Sony got fixed (but a little problematic with KDE here). I hope that Canonical got to backport this patch for their stable kernel.

      This is actually duplicate work. A driver called xpadneo has existed for quite some time. Valve should work on helping that project and help to get it into the kernel instead of wasting its precious TF2-hat-earned money on duplicate work. Duplicate work is the cancer of linux ecosystems.

        I'm using xpadneo which works pretty great and has a lot more features (battery status, rumble on the triggers, dpad to button and so on) as the Valve driver. https://github.com/atar-axis/xpadneo

          This is better than loremipsum. Care to share the source?

            These principles where originally of monotheism, and I am testing out philosophy with a zén-concept of The Gôdh, Ixxis, deassociating it from hallucinogens.
            Goodness, I just achieved enlightenment reading that post. Are you available as a guru? Asking for a friend.

              valve has hired Andrey apparently with a view of undertaking more kernel contributions https://twitter.com/Plagman2/status/...658956288?s=19

                The first thing I do when using a controller in a new Windows installation is make vibration stop working.
